Want a tropical cocktail that's not mouth-numbingly sweet? How about one that will give you more than one kind of buzz? Enter this rum-cocktail from Kevin Beary at Chicago's Three Dots and a Dash.

Beary combines three types of rum with Madeira and shakes it with coffee liqueur for a hint of bitterness and sweetness. We encourage you to give making your own coffee liqueur a go, but also feel free to use Kahlúa. Poured up in a tiki glass, this drink is great for imagining you're on a beach.
